Paul Klee: Making visible through the model of music

  • Monday 17 November 2014 - 15:00 until 16:00

This talk by Simon Shaw-Miller explores the work of artist Paul Klee. Spanning his entire career, it will emphasize the role of music as a key way of thinking, and as a model for his drawing and painting. Specific attention is paid to the influential techniques of composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Carl Maria von Weber and Johann Sebasitan Bach.

This is the second in a series of London Afternoon Talks – MUSIC IN ART. Using both visual images and sound clips we look at Music in Art from the end of the 19th century to the early part of the 20th. As expressed by Kandinsky – ‘lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and … stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to “walk about” into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?’

This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
